  • 1 lb chicken breast or chicken cutlets
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup panko crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons oil or as much as needed


  • In a large bowl, mix milk and lemon juice. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, cut chicken fillets in half and place between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Using a mallet or rolling pin, pound lightly to flatten the pieces a bit. Repeat for all the chicken. [If you are using chicken cutlets, you can skip this step.]
  • Cut the chicken fillets into strips.
  • Place chicken strips in the bowl and mix to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in fridge. Allow to marinate for at least 20 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 400F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Mix the flour, panko crumbs, salt, paprika and pepper in a large ziploc bag.
  • Place the chicken strips one at a time in the bag and shake to coat. Then arrange the breaded chicken strips on a baking pan lined with parchment paper, drizzling with olive oil on both sides.
  • Bake for about 12 minutes. Then flip the chicken strips and bake for an additional 12 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
